It’s National Distracted Driving Awareness Month!

Distracted Driving Awareness MonthEliminating Distracted Driving Once And For All

The Month of April signifies the arrival of spring amongst other things. April is National Distracted Driving Awareness Month! This month strives to educate motorists of the dangers of driving while distracted, helping to make the world a safer place.

To celebrate National Distracted Driving Awareness Month, you first need to put down your phones! Our society has become so fixated on our smart devices that we rarely put them down, but failing to do so while behind the wheel can yield fatal consequences. While you may be inclined to assume you are safe because you are using a hands free device, driving with a Bluetooth device does not mean that you are driving risk free.

One of the most important things you can do during the month of April and all year long for that matter is educate others. So many people are embarrassed to discuss the dangers associated with their distracted driving habits but it is something that must be addressed. Next time someone calls you while on the road, make an effort to continue the conversation once they have completed their route.
